Geomicrobiology at UNLV

Living on the edge of the mineral world

Geomicrobiology explores how microbial life affects transformations of elements in major biogeochemical cycles (Fe, S, C, N …).

The Geomicrobiology Group at UNLV focuses on the interface between microorganisms and minerals.

The research activities of the Geomicrobiology Group at UNLV focus on understanding microbe-mineral interactions in the context of biogeochemistry and astrobiology.
